T Weatherby Helps Support NHSRA A Weatherby custom-made, limited-edition Mark V rifle and a Vanguard rifle helped raise more than $100,000 to support the scholarship and leadership development programs of the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA). The NHSRA conducted a national drawing for the Weatherby rifles. The Mark V was valued at $14,000. The Vanguard was part of a Texas deer-hunt package. The drawing, held in the summer of 2010 at the National High School Finals Rodeo in Gillette, Wyo., gave participants the chance to win the rifles with each $10 donation. Included with the custom-designed Mark V rifle was an Elite 4200 2.5-10x40mm scope donated by Bushnell. For more information, visit www.weatherbynation.com.
